Loughborough University London Jobs Fair - 6 October 2022

As part of the Future Space induction activities to welcome our October 2022 cohort, the Future Space team hosted our first ever Jobs Fair on Thursday 6th October. We were joined by over 400 students all looking to speak with external organisations looking to offer part time, internship, voluntary and graduate roles.

Our partner organisations at this event ranged from small businesses and volunteering agencies local to the Olympic Park to larger London based graduate recruiters, consultancy agencies and charity foundations. We were especially lucky to be joined by recent LU LDN Alum who attended to share part time and graduate opportunities with our new cohort.

Dan Robinson, Future Space projects manager said “It was great to see so many of our students on campus, connecting with external businesses to explore recruitment opportunities and to learn more about what is expected of potential candidates when looking ahead to career plans. We are very lucky to have such a wealth of opportunities here in Stratford and we were happy to welcome our neighbours and guests onto campus to share these opportunities with our students in person, and certainly something we would look to grow in the near future”.

When asked for feedback on the event, our students shared the following:

“It was great to meet so many people, and a great range of companies to find out about potential career paths”

“The event was wonderful! It offered so many opportunities”

The participating organisations likewise were impressed by the enthusiasm and number of LU LDN’s students attending throughout the day.

Ben Barbour, attending to represent Bloomsbury Football Foundation said “We were very pleased with how the event went, it was a good opportunity to network with other attendees and the quality of candidate coming up to us was better than we’ve had elsewhere.”

Claire Stewart of Prorizon said “We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity and very much enjoyed speaking with your students. Here's hoping that they too enjoyed meeting us and we look forward to hopefully working with them going forward."

If you are an organisation looking to fulfil recruitment needs in the future, why not get in touch FutureSpace@lboro.ac.uk and the team will be happy to get in touch to discuss further.
